Your intuition offers a critical pathway to popular conceptions of the ways and means "arbitrary" censorship appears to violate freedom of the press (1st Amd., US Constitution only) and yet enforce sanctions against so-called unprotected speech (any origin). Let's begin by defining some relevant terms of authority --those socially acceptable and socially unacceptable-- to censor "speech."

With respect to the Telecommunications Act of 1996 (definitions) is the business of "social media platforms" such as Facebook and Twitter publishing or common carrier?

With respect to EU CODE OF CONDUCT ON COUNTERING ILLEGAL HATE SPEECH ONLINE is the business of "social media platforms" such as Facebook and Twitter publishing or common carrier?

With respect to international reportage ProPublica | Protect White Men From Hate Speech But Not Black Children is the business of "social media platforms" such as Facebook and Twitter publishing or common carrier?

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
